We recognize that students and staff in the outdoor education community need the perspectives, leadership, and voices that represent the diversity of our larger society. The NOLS US Instructor-in-Training (IIT) Program is currently focused on providing a structured pathway for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to develop skills to work in outdoor education.
We acknowledge that the outdoor education field still struggles to attract and support this diversity. NOLS strives to be at the forefront of initiatives designed to ensure that the faces you see and voices you hear in the backcountry better reflect our society as a whole. In the future, NOLS is committed to expanding the IIT Program to be more inclusive to other identities underrepresented in the outdoors.
Since 2011, the Fellowship and Instructor-in-Training Program has provided a structured pathway for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color to build wilderness, leadership and teaching skills necessary to work in the outdoor education field. Through a combination of one-on-one mentorship, operations training, and field experience, IITs develop the necessary skills to begin a career in outdoor education and open doors for fresh perspectives on our engagement with natural spaces.
